Ingredients

  • 4 cups sliced fresh plums

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pastry shell

TOPPING:

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 3 tablespoons cold butter or margarine

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients; pour into the pastry shell. For topping, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl; cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over filling. Bake at 375 degrees F for 50-60 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Cover edges of crust during the last 20 minutes to prevent overbrowning. Cool on a wire rack.
